Subject: Modified Issue #12.916 Dictionary of Human Biology, Peter Reuter

The "Birkhauser Dictionary of Human Biology" is one of the most
comprehensive German-English/English-German dictionaries on the
international market. More than 60.000 entries and subentries with
some 150.000 translations and an extent appendix with abbreviations,
terminologia anatomica and important figures provide users with an
excellent coverage of medical, biological and related bioscientific
areas. The dictionary excels through a harmonious synthesis of
biomedical and general bilingual dictionaries, making it the ideal
choice for users from both scientific and linguistic
fields. Furthermore the "Birkhauser Dictionary of Human Biology" is
marked by a first class linguistic and lexicographic treatment and
offers additional features, such as syllabification and
pronounciation, that help in achieving a very high user friendliness
and user satisfaction.

Since 1989 the authors have built up the most comprehensive medical 
and scientific bilingual database. Peter Reuter, a physician and a 
translator by profession, lived and worked in the United Kingdom for 
ten years, before moving to Florida, USA. He has already published 
more than a dozen dictionaries and CD-ROMs. Reviews of these 
dictionaries in German and international journals have been 
outstanding ("Reuter/Reuter volumes will prove indispensible for 
medical translators ..." Per N. Dohler, American Translators 
Association, Chronicle) and it is certain that the new "Birkhauser 
Dictionary of Human Biology" will be the standard for all bilingual 
biomedical dictionaries.
